The Atlanta Braves have signed 37-year old catcher Javier Lopez to a minor league contract. Lopez last played in the majors during the 2006 season with the Orioles and Red Sox. Lopez has now played in 1,503 games in his major league career and he is 1,527 for 5,319 (.287 avg, .828 OPS) with 674 runs scored, 260 homers and 864 RBIs. This was a nice move by the Braves to give a chance to Javy Lopez to revive his career as a backup.
